  1. Even a Dinosaur can do it

    Posted by Lauren on 18th Jun 2019

    Look, I'm an older gal...with an e46 custom build manual gearbox wagon..she's a sweet girl but when that stereo went...bummer. Anyway, I ordered this part and talked to Thomas 3 or 4 times (SORRY!!!!) but I finally got this baby done and it works like a CHARM. I did end up with a few extra screws (WHAT???) but who cares?! This is a great fix and Thomas is a terrific guy. THANK YOU!

  2. You Can Do It!!!

    Posted by Unknown on 16th May 2019

    First time attempting a repair like this -if you can use a screwdriver, go for it! Part fits perfectly (aside from replacement screw fit issues noted in other reviews -I was able to re-use original screws) and step-by-step video was crucial (although several of the screw locations were different on my CD53 for some reason). Well done, BavTek!!!

  3. Works

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Dec 2018

    This part and the video allowed me to easily repair the radio in my E46. The included screws were oversized, so the control knob bracket needed to be drilled out slightly to accommodate them. The new bracket seems to be sintered plastic, i.e. 3D printed; my first experience with such a material. As light as it was, I tried to snap it in half with reasonable force when I unpacked it, but it held firm. In fine, if your control knob stops working, this is the fix.

  4. Perfect product

    The part was a perfect fit and I'm happy to know it was made to last. Like others have said, the screws were a bit big, but they were still usable. What keeps it at 5 stars was the video which was great! I do not fix cars or stereos or anything handy at all and I was able to follow along with the video and do it myself.

  5. great product

    Great fix to the radio. It was also great help with the step by step how to install on your web site was a big help.

  6. Great DIY Guide!

  7. Repaired stereo to new

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Mar 2018

    The part was a perfect fit! Everything went together well. The only reason I did not rate this a 5 was due to the screws installed in the part. The supplied screws do not fit through the metal bracket on the switch. I had to drill out the bracket as the original screws were too small for the Holes in the part.

  8. Great part, screws a bit too large

    Posted by Michael on 14th Feb 2018

    The part worked great to fix my broken radio volume knob. And the instruction video really helped for the self-install. Thanks for offering this as it saved my broken radio.

    My only complaint was that the supplied screws had threads wider than the stock screws so they were a bit difficult to get through the metal plate for the volume knob and they left the knob just slightly skewed (not perfectly centered) after they were put on. And, because they were wider and already screwed into the plastic part when they arrived, I couldn't re-use the stock screws.

    While I appreciate the screws being included, I would suggest either getting the same screw thread size as the stock screws or at least not screwing them into to plastic part so that one can re-use the stock screws if they want.

  9. Great product

    This piece fit perfectly and arrived on time.
    The screws were slightly larger than stock but they worked fine.

  10. Perfect Fit

    Very good replacement part, dimensionally correct and clearly a more robust design than the original. Excellent buying experience with BavTech: the part shipped promptly and the installation video was very helpful. -1 for value, as others have mentioned, but it certainly fixes the problem.
